Designed by Harry Bertoia in 1950 as a result of an experiment that involved bending metal rods into practical art, this iconic chair is as much a sculptural work of art as it is a chair.
Crafted by Knoll, its frame is made from strong welded steel rods in a polished chrome finish or bonded Rislan finish. Its strikingly innovative and seemingly fragile filigree construction masks the chair's strength and durability.
Featuring a removable fully upholstered cover, each elegant chair is adorned with Harry Bertoia's signature as a mark of authenticity.
Described by Italian designer Christophe Pillet as universal, timeless and absolutely necessary, the chair was awarded the Certificate of Merit by the American Institute of Architects and the Design Center Stuttgart Award (1962).
